Political Cartoon

This is a cartoon of a Cherokee Indian being strapped up and tortured. This represents Andrew Jackson and the government doing bad things to the Indians. It is also showing that the people don't care about what happens to the Cherokee. The people just want the land, and the Cherokee to leave.

Letter from Cherokee

This Indian Removal Act is crazy. There shouldn't be a law that removes a certain race from a land. We shouldn't be forced to move from our land even though we were here first. We can't fight back, because we are out gunned and out numbered.

Letter from Plantation Owner

I am so pleased at what Andrew Jackson has done to this country. He has removed the Cherokee, so us plantation owners can have more land for our slaves. This land in Georgia is nice for cotton. We are also allowed to have more slaves.
